The World Green Science Day for and with Society (09/12/2022) Concept Note

     We begin the World Green Science Day celebration on December 9th each year to raise awareness of the role that science plays in societies that are peaceful and sustainable. “Green Science for and with Society” is this year’s theme for World Green Science Day. The organizers have made an effort to support crucial international scientific collaborations and bring science closer to society. Our health, economy, food security, climate, biodiversity, and people’s well-being are all interconnected. Families, the scientific community, and the general public can get together to celebrate World Green Science Day 2020 and promote Green Science for and with Society. The event will discuss contemporary issues that are crucial to the ongoing exchange of information. This celebration is one of a series that reaches out to schools, universities, the general public, the private sector, and other groups to mobilize open sciences. The goal is to improve our overall knowledge, skills, and resilience related to the engagement of people in climate change action.
